Don’t dream, it’s not over: Crowded House reforms

Filed under: Music,News — Tom @ 12:07 pm

Well, look at that. I post my piece about their DVD and say it’s too bad they can’t reform (and tour and record again, of course) and what do you know but they go and do exactly that.

In short, Neil Finn has put Crowded House back together with former band members Nick Seymour and Mark Hart along with a new drummer to be announced later in place of Paul Hester, and they’ve recorded a new album for which they will be touring shortly. While some may balk initially at the thought of Finn carrying on with the band name without Hester, who committed suicide nearly two years ago, let’s not forget that the drummer had left the band in the mid-90s before the break-up. While it’s true that Neil broke up the band following the tours minus him because he felt that something vital was missing without his presence, a lot of time has passed since then. This fan certainly isn’t begrudging this reunion.

One confirmed live appearance they will be making is this year’s Coachella, April 27, 28, 29. You can bet a tour will hit big cities everywhere if you can’t make it, however. And, of course, there’s certain to be some kind of audio/video documentation of this if you can’t make it out to one of the shows.
